Forum: GratefulDead Subject: 70-11-20---Is this guy for real?

While looking through some AUD's, I found the following review:

Reviewer: peter_r - - December 31, 2004
Subject: The real story
This encoding is almost certainly from cassettes with significant drop outs - I have the "originals" If somebody wants to do a better job, let me know at The story is: Yes, airplane played the war memorial that night and yes, Jorma and Jack did play, Grace announced that she'd love to sing for us but her voice was trashed.... There was a student named Bob Stone who made the live hand-held recording ( I don't know what equipment), intending to sell bootlegs on campus at U of R. I, and a few fellow dead-heads, conspired to liberate the music. Bob went away one weekend and we broke into his dorm room, "borrowed" the tapes, and recorded them from a Nakamichi cassette deck onto a TEAC open reel deck at 7.5 IPS using maxell tape. We rented an EQ from a local pro audio shop ( I forget the details). We then copied the master tape and made dubs for anyone who wanted them, but lots of what is out there is almost certainly 2nd or 3rd generation. My tapes DO suffer from absences in the late set with the airplane, but not some of the drop-outs and reel-flips or "nearby radio station".

For years I have been hoping a soundboard from this show would surface. In the interim if somebody wants to re-encode this one-of-a-kind show, I will gladly share....

The Archive only has one copy of this show so it does not appear that anyone contacted Peter. I sent an email this afternoon. I have not heard back BUT my email has not bounced back either---we'll see.

Which brings up another question: Do you think there are many people like Peter who recorded something in college, 40+ years ago, and still have it?

Yes . Many . The quality ? I even have a few self made tapes that I wouldn't let the pets listen to from the late 80's .
Those of us who listened to about any level of quality , just to hear the music are a finite number now . We are all thankfully spoiled with a high % of good to perfect sounding shows .
I actually listened to this show more then a few times . My Dad's first show . If only he went to the next night , my life could have been completely different , as he would have surely become a dhead .;-)
